Still, Córdoba has its things to offer, and in case you have to drop by, here's some information about it.

Córdoba city

The capital city of the province of Cordoba is called Córdoba as well as the phenomena of brain-storm didn't exist in those days.

 

Despite this, Córdoba's university is the oldest in Argentina and the 4th oldest in the continent.


Cordoba is the second largest city in Argentina after Capital Federal, and most public transport is available 24 hours which is very handy to walk down the city centre at night.

This is where the Jesuit Block is.

This is where the first Jesuists established back in the 16th century after the church gave them this lot to promote people staying in Córdoba, as the place was a strategic spot for the Spanish crown.

This place was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.

Today, the Manzana Jesuitica offers a display of old colonial buildings which include the University of Córdoba -one of the oldest in South America- a school, a church, and residence buildings. This area has good lightning at night which makes is almost ideal for a night walk around the place.

The church still works as such and the streets have remained untouched.
